Now, while it may be perfectly okay for some people to use certain slang words, there seems to be some debate over just who those people are. In fact, while the majority of folks think that those over the age of 43 are too old to use slang, 20% actually think it’s not okay for those over the age of 25.
And of course, there are dos and don’ts when it comes to where slang is appropriate. For example, 37% of people say it’s never acceptable to use slang at work. Along those lines, 55% of people are against using “lol” in an email to their boss, while close to half think it’s also bad to use it in an email to a co-worker.
